Key facts

Within the framework of the urban transportation programme PAV, the Confederation contributes financially to transportation projects in towns, cities and conurbations. Conurbations whose programmes effectively align transportation with urban development receive federal subsidies. The Federal Office for Spatial Development (ARE) is the lead authority in the PAV, which is a joint task of the Confederation, cantons and communes.
